    3 serving Sweet Potatoes, Baked (One potato)
    1 cup kernels Yellow Sweet Corn, Frozen
    2 medium (4-1/8" long) Scallions, raw
    100 grams Cilantro, raw
    .25 tsp Pepper, red or cayenne
    1 tsp Cumin (ground)
    1 tsp Salt
    1 large Egg, fresh, whole, raw
    .33 cup Yellow Cornmeal
    1 cup Bread crumbs, dry, grated, plain
    1 cup (8 fl oz) Yogurt, plain, low fat
    1 clove Garlic
    1 tbsp Crisco Pure Vegetable Oil


If cakes are too dry try cooking them in a shallow skillet with enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan.


Begin by cooking the sweet potatoes. The fastest way to do this is in the microwave. Prick the skin of each potato with a fork. Wrap one potato in a paper towel, place it on a plate, and microwave on high for 5 minutes. Carefully remove it from the microwave, squeeze it to make sure itís soft in the center, and the allow it cool as you cook the next one. When the potatoes are cool enough to handle, cut them open and scoop the flesh into a large bowl.
Slice the green onions and roughly chop a handful of cilantro (about ⅛th of a bunch). Add the green onions, cilantro, frozen corn kernels, salt, cumin, and cayenne pepper to the bowl with the cooked sweet potatoes. Stir until well combined. You can taste it at this point and adjust the seasoning as desired.
Add the breadcrumbs, cornmeal, and egg to the bowl. These ingredients will bind the mixture together and keep it from falling apart while cooking. Stir until evenly combined. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow the breadcrumbs to absorb moisture.
While the sweet potato mixture is refrigerating, mix up the garlic sauce. In a small bowl combine the yogurt, one clove of well minced garlic, and a handful of cilantro leaves (roughly chopped). Stir until combined and then refrigerate until ready to serve.
After the sweet potato mixture has refrigerated, itís time to cook. Add 1 tsp oil to a pre-heated cast iron skillet/griddle. Shape the sweet potato mixture into small patties (about 2-3 Tbsp each) and cook until golden brown on each side; about 2 minutes per side. After cooking, place on a paper towel covered plate to drain. Add more oil to the skillet as needed.
